Accreditation Connection, December 22, 2010

Updated and revised laboratory standards have been announced by the Joint Commission, to go into effect July 1, 2011.

Organizations will be able to get a look at these standards beginning January 2011 through The Joint Commission’s official website. The intent of the standards revisions, according to an official Joint Commission statement, is to add dept to both the standards and elements of performance while allowing healthcare organizations enough flexibility to tailor their own policies and procedures to their unique needs.
